Fantastic news, Ramblers. As I’m sure many of you already know, Rick Yancey’s awesome novel, The 5th Wave, has been adapted for the big screen. With Chloe Grace Moretz taking the lead role, the film looks set to be a faithful, action-packed adaptation.
Good times for all The 5th Wave fans out there.
What you might not know is that, as part of their promotional campaign, Sony Pictures have teamed up with Wattpad to produce a series of novelettes focusing on the Four Waves that hit the world prior to the start of the novel.
Y’all see where I’m going with this?
Yes, Ramblers, Sony have selected me to be part of this project. Give me a moment while I run around, shrieking madly. I joined Wattpad for the simple purpose of sharing my stories with people, and I never expected that it would open up such a fantastic opportunity. Yes, I know it sounds corny, but I really do feel honoured to be a part of this.
The story I have been commissioned to write will be set during the 3rd Wave, at the height of the Blood Plague. For me, that was the grimmest and most devastating of the Waves, so you can understand how super-psyched I am to be writing about it.
And because a picture is worth a thousand words, here are some GIFs that capture my reaction when I found out the news.
